Pluto’s new partner gives you GP access 24/7 when you’re on holiday

Finally, you are on holiday! Time to kick back and relax, but then disaster strikes. After weeks or months of looking forward to your holiday, you’re ill.

Getting sick on holiday can not only be a worrying and upsetting experience, it can also be a logistical nightmare. It can be difficult to know where to go for help. There may be language barriers and you might not want to go straight to a doctor or emergency department to rack up medical bills if it’s something that could be treated easily.

You need access to a UK-based GP, on the phone or video call.  That’s where ZoomDoc come in.

As you know, we like to make the bad bits about travel, better - quickly.  So we’ve partnered with ZoomDoc to give you access to their app-based on-demand private GP service when you travel.
